Lesnar Plans?

Scott,
 
If it is indeed true that Brock Lesnar is done with WWE after WrestleMania, do you think it is worth having him headline that show as champion?  In the internet era of instant information, everyone is going to know he's done before the show even rolls around.  They ran into that problem at WrestleMania 20 the last time he (and his opponent) left.  The only saving grace for that match was that it was thankfully not the main event or a title match getting shit all over by the crowd.  Personally, I think if WWE knows he is done post-WM31, Brock doesn't go into the show as champ.  I think the way to go is for Cena to take the belt at Rumble and be the guy to put Reigns over at Mania.  As mentioned on the Blog by many, having Cena as champ is the one surefire way to get the fans to support Reigns in that match.  I'm not sure Reigns gets the fans' support against Lesnar and I could see the whole "Brock threatens to retire with the belt tomorrow night" concept blowing up in their faces if the fans aren't all-in on Reigns.  I think Cena vs. Roman is the way to go if Reigns is the next Guy.  I would then have Rusev go over Lesnar to pass the "monster" torch before Brock leaves.  If they are going to put Rusev over the whole world en route to going against Cena (and eventually Reigns), then may as well go all the way and have him beat Brock.  This way you get something lasting out of Lesnar's last match without risking fan backlash against Lesnar vs. Reigns and Cena vs. Rusev. 

​Yeah, you can certainly say that WWE's timing on this Brock contract deal is not working out very well for them, to say the least.  Especially with both UFC and Bellator very publicly in a sort-of bidding war for Brock's services once his deal is up.  Basically Vince has gotten none of the rub or money increases from having Brock around, put his main title in the deep freeze for months with no payoff yet, and then is pretty much guaranteed to lose the guy to his competition the day after the deal is finished.  ​I wasn't really on the "drop the title before Wrestlemania" train before now, but it might be the smarter play at this point. Hell, given hindsight he probably shouldn't have won it in the first place, since the Night of Champions show was such a flop that it negated any of the point of him winning it.  

Comments

  1. If Brock can be trusted (which I'm sure he can be), i'd still go with the passing of the torch at Wrestlemania. So let's say it's Reigns, he can claim to get the title back from the mercenary, and also speared him right out of WWE or something. He would come off as the savior, etc etc. I don't think Brock would get WM 20 backlash this time, as his entire gimmick is basically an arrogant guy who feels he's above WWE.

  2. The end of Lesnar will also be the end of Heyman. I can't them having him try to advocate anybody else after the flops of Axel, Ryback, and Cesaro.

    ReplyDelete
  3. well...... They were all booked to lose..... It's like I don't blame Dibiase at all for the Corporation failing, as well.. they were also always booked to lose.

    ReplyDelete
  4. Lesnar's run has been a wash business-wise, hasn't it? I think we'll look back on it as a terrible idea. He popped one PPV buyrate and has done nothing to increase the stock of anyone (but himself) since. Cena is lessened because of his beatings, Taker has no draw now, and nobody new has been put over.


    Credit to the guy, he's made a shitload of money doing very little and come out looking better than almost anyone in WWE history.

    ReplyDelete
  5. I will make a return to MMA before Lesnar does.

    ReplyDelete
  6. Well, we'll wait for the "Nobody new has been put over" until he actually loses the title. Cause Reigns (or Ambrose or Bryan) could sure as heck be put over in a big way.

    ReplyDelete
  7. This will hopefully make WWE realize that this part timer BS isn't the way to go unless it's a one-shot deal at Mania.

    ReplyDelete
  8. Three matchs vs HHH was the killer. Though didn't the first one at Summerslam do good business?
    I sitll think their is value in Brock mind. A return to UFC is unlikely: maybe a couple of years at Bellator, then another WWE run?

    ReplyDelete
  9. Someone made a good point a few weeks ago, this could just be Lesnar using MMA to squeeze out a better extension deal for WWE? That would be brilliant, if he knows his body can't handle MMA anymore. Why not create a little bidding war?

    ReplyDelete
  10. True, but as of yet the run hasn't benefited anyone apart from Lesnar.

    ReplyDelete
  11. Let's not forget the original plan for him to feud with Bryan got screwed up when Bryan got hurt. But yeah in the end, they pussied out of putting him with someone new so we got another Cena/Brock series. I have to say though that Lesnar/Reigns sounds like a complete joke match. Even in a fake sport it would be laughable seeing Reigns trying to step to Lesnar

    ReplyDelete
  12. Reigns, at this point, is nowhere near a Mania main event, is he?

    ReplyDelete
  13. Anyway, artistically, i'm ok with Brock's run.
    An awesome first match against Cena, and an awesome match vs Punk. A couple of good matches vs Cena later, three matches against HHH varying between good to above average, and a good moment beating Taker ( though the match was a bit poo)
    The lack of a brock v bryan match was annoying, but not really the WWE's fault. And as much as a Brock v Orton/Sheamus/Caesaro match would have been good, i can understand why they didn't do that because of the money they sepnt on his contract.
    I personally would have either had Orton fight him instead of HHH, or would have had Cena lose at Night of Champions and have Orton v brock for rumble.

    ReplyDelete
  14. Then maybe they can have Brock face either Cena, HHH, Undertaker, or Big Show at Wrestlemania and really make sure they completely waste Brock's whole run, the streak ending and the destruction of Cena at Summerslam by using it to put over fuckjng John Cena.

    ReplyDelete
  15. One triumphant Rumble win later he will be...

    ReplyDelete
  16. Royal Rumble's in Philly. I don't fancy his chances.

    ReplyDelete
  17. There were ways to make the most out of Brock. But seven months after ending the Streak,
    what has he done? Two matches with John Cena. That’s just a total fucking
    waste. He probably wants to go to UFC because he’s bored. Brock likes money,
    but he also likes challenges.

    ReplyDelete
  18. Who in the world knew that Brock was such a great businessman? Is that not the weirdest revelation out of this whole deal? I'm not going to lie...this whole thing makes me jealous as hell. Brock, Devin Harris tips his Atlanta Braves hat to you sir

    ReplyDelete
  19. Yeah - I've changed my opinion on this as well now.
    There is no way they put Brock big time over Cena (again) if he is leaving. The best solution is to have Cena beat Brock then Reigns gets the rub by virtue of beating the undisputed top guy in Cena at Mania.
    Brock can then go bat crazy on a triumphant returning Bryan and you do the match they wanted to do at Summerslam with Bryan going over huge at Mania and sending Brock away having benefited three stars in his final run.
    After that you can easily go with Reigns/Bryan down the line and possibly turn Reigns if it's not working out for him as a face.
    If Bryan isn't ready to go you can substitute any up and coming face in to that spot instead for Mania.

    ReplyDelete
  20. Whatever the best way to use Brock is, it's not taking him off TV for FOUR MONTHS. This is insane! Insane!

    ReplyDelete
  21. The match with Bryan would've been great, I'm sure, but you have to wonder what was their end game?

    ReplyDelete
  22. I just dont want him to drop the belt to Cena. Because then what the hell was the point of beating the streak? To make John Cena even bigger? I'm not even a cena hater, I just thought the whole point of beating the streak is to create a new star.

    ReplyDelete
  23. A healthy Bryan vs Brock at Summerslam would've been so good, but I doubt we'll ever see that match now.

    ReplyDelete
  24. I guess Brock squashes Bryan and they could
    just do those two matches exactly as they were, then he moves onto a program
    with Cena, then that seques into whomever was going to take him down at Mania.
    So now they replaced Bryan with Cena and Cena with nothing.

    ReplyDelete
  25. If Taker's fit in April and not facing Sting, hell, they may as well just give Taker his win back at 31 if Lesnar's going to be lame duck for that show.

    ReplyDelete
  26. They aren't _taking_ him off. He doesn't have to be there, so he doesn't show up.


    What was dumber, WCW leaving the title on Lex Luger for months after they'd burned up all the dates on his contract, or what WWE is doing with Lesnar and the WWE title?

    ReplyDelete
  27. Yeah, you all know I'm a Cena defender, but I agree. I hope Brock beats Cena clean in their final blowoff match, then passes the torch to a new guy at WM, in what might be his final match. I'm definitely watching the Rumble at the theatre (if it's still available), and I'm looking forward to the match, and gonna be rooting for Brock. (if anything, these contract rumors will make the match more exciting, as there is now a legit doubt)

    ReplyDelete
  28. At this point, yeah. Might be the only thing the crowd doesn't shit on.


    Better still, make it for the title, then have Taker sit out with the WWE title for another year. That way, Taker's match will really mean something come WM32!

    ReplyDelete
  29. It was reported in the Observer ages ago that they re-did his contract for more dates. Or is this a kayfabe comment?

    ReplyDelete
  30. That lazy f*ck!! [/Baker]

    ReplyDelete
  31. Only downside is that match fucking blew until the finish. :(

    ReplyDelete
  32. What dates? Did they say? If not, I don't buy it.

    ReplyDelete
  33. Ah okay, this is what the Observer reported: "WWE currently has a deal in place withBrock Lesnar – while he remains WWE World Heavyweight Champion – that they can add dates for Monday Night Raw and PPV events to use him as they need. This was a concern for many fans wondering if the champion would be on television between now and WrestleMania next April, but as long as WWE is willing to pay Lesnar’s steep per-date appearance rate, he is available for as many shows as they see fit.

    The original deal, which saw Brock work just a handful of dates per year, which were all known months in advance, is still in place. That means he’s guaranteed the big-money matches the two parties have already agreed on, but it’s likely you’ll see Lesnar work the majority of PPV events while he remains champion."

    So they can have him whenever they want, they just have to pay, which I guess they're not crazy about doing.

    ReplyDelete
  34. Lesnar walking into Wrestlemania as champion is the way to go. If Reigns is their new guy, then have him beat Brock at Mania. And booking it this way would show more long-term planning since Reigns can always beat Cena later unlike what he could do with Lesnar.

    ReplyDelete
  35. Yeah you are right, especially with Bryan's health etc. Although part of me is still holding out for that match at Mania - title or not.
    I understand the Cena hate on this thread but Cena will defo be there to put over new stars (which he has done in the past) after Mania so I just can't see logic in giving Lesnar another win over him at this point.

    ReplyDelete
  36. They don't have to do much. Bunch of smoke and mirrors (literal smoke and mirrors), Taker emerges from somewhere by surprise and tombstones Brock, gets a one count. Tombstones him again, gets a two count. Tombstones him a third time, gets the win and the title, as Sting looks on mysteriously from the rafters.


    Build for one year to WM32, and Sting wins the title from Taker in a six minute match. Sting retreats to the rafters with the WWE title, shocks everyone by staying away for WM33, then finally returns at WM34 to job the title to John Cena in a six minute match in Cena's retirement match.

    ReplyDelete
  37. Speaking of which. With no title and no authoriy, what are the even fighting for anymore?

    ReplyDelete
  38. omg sting is so mysterious what is he thinking it must be a mystery

    ReplyDelete
  39. You've been reading Russo books Raw!

    ReplyDelete
  40. Maybe they lost so much money in the CM Punk lawsuits that they can no longer afford to bring their champion back.

    ReplyDelete
  41. If only they had other titles that people cared about.

    ReplyDelete
  42. They should've let Rollins actually cash in and win at NoC. Would have shaken things up a bit. Brock could always come back and kill him whenever they wanted.

    ReplyDelete
  43. They are fighting to impress the guest hosts. In this next case, a computer.

    ReplyDelete
  44. And if the crowd shits on Reigns, so be it. At least they accomplished the goal (I assume) in having Lesnar beat the Undertaker.

    ReplyDelete
  45. Also, what about facing Cena is gonna make them suddenly cheer Reigns? If the crowd really isn't behind Reigns, then they'll just shit on both guys. Terrible logic.

    ReplyDelete
  46. Stop using reader mail to weasel out of commenting on the CM Punk podcast!

    ReplyDelete
  47. The real question is if lesnar leaves what happens to heyman???

    ReplyDelete
  48. Yep. No need to go into panic mode here. Stick to the plan.

    ReplyDelete
  49. And address the Kyle Fitta controversy!

    ReplyDelete
  50. Reigns should just squash lesnar in the mid card somewhere. Yeah it sucks but it beats having him wrestle for 25plus minutes at wrestlemania, especially if hes not ready. That could get ugly. Or you can just do a four way with Leanar and the shield. That is something that would be fun.

    ReplyDelete
  51. Oh, Brock can absolutely be trusted, because he simply does not give a shit about wrestling. It was always about the money. He'd job out to Ryder as long as he was getting a payday.

    ReplyDelete
  52. To prove that they are not scurred of ghosts?

    ReplyDelete
  53. If they change Reigns name to Roman "Cena Sucks" Reigns it'll all work out fine.

    ReplyDelete
  54. That sounds like an attitude era ppv.

    ReplyDelete
  55. Kick JBL to the curb. ASAP

    ReplyDelete
  56. Thats like getting the wwe's side in the Punk thing. Aint happenen!

    ReplyDelete
  57. I think Vince is in panic mode every week. Proof being that he rewrites each episode a few hours before the show is going to be on. Which is a huge problem.


    I've worked at a place where the CFO is in that constant panic mode and all it results in are bad products, unfinished products and the entire staff being constantly stressed.

    ReplyDelete
  58. And when he does stick to a plan, there's a bunch of bitching that it's predictable (aka, WM 29) . So Vince can't win.

    ReplyDelete
  59. It’s not a terrible idea. Squash him like
    Brock squashed Cena (but quicker). Only way it might not work is if people
    think Reigns is being over-protected and the perception holds that Reigns can’t
    work a good long match.

    ReplyDelete
  60. Wrestlemania 29 just sucked. Predictable doesn't always equal boring.

    ReplyDelete
  61. Brock's role in the title picture should always have been limited to him, as a challenger, putting over an up-and-coming champion, like Bryan (if he'd been healthy) or Rollins, and giving them a major star rub. That's it. Putting the title on ice for months was a TERRIBLE idea given how often they use titles as a crutch in lieu of coming up with actual storylines, and it was never going to be worth (or even justifiable given all the cuts in the aftermath of the Network's slow start) adding dates to his contract so he could be a defending champion. Some of us never needed hindsight to come to what the WWE is now realizing.

    ReplyDelete
  62. Also Lawler. And Cole. Heyman and Russell!

    ...okay a younger guy. Fine.

  63. Online jobs guys

    I just got paid $8580 working off my computer this month. And if you think that's cool, my divorced? friend has twin toddlers and made over $9k her first month. It feels so good making so much money when other people have to work for so much less.,,,,,

    This is what I do--⇛⇛⇛►►► www.reviews-247.com

    ReplyDelete
  64. Think someone pitched this on the blog a few months ago and it got quite a bit of support. Certain;y be a cool moment and one I could see on the Raw after Mania to wrote Lesnar out.Only downside though is nobody really benefits from Lesnar as it took three guys to beat him down.
    If he's fit the best and most realistic solution is to have Bryan (a guy the fans love) beat Lesnar for the title. Bryan never lost the belt and to many is the uncrowned champion and number 1 baby face in the company. Ok the size difference is well....but this is FAKE wrestling. We all believed when Shawn Michaels beat Diesel and many other times throughout history.
    If he's not ready then yeah pull the trigger on Reigns by all means.

    ReplyDelete
  65. Yeah, ECW mutants are gonna Reign on his parade.


    Eh? Ehhhhh? *taps on the mic* Hello? Hello, is this thing on?

    ReplyDelete
  66. Not many people discuss Rollins but for me he is the biggest loser of this situation. He is red hot right now and doing brilliant work - under any other circumstances and in any other year he'd be Champion already.

    ReplyDelete
  67. To be fair to Heyman, he did work well with Punk. I enjoyed him and Punk together. Punk didn't really NEED him, but it was a fun and short-lived addition.

    ReplyDelete
  68. Wait a minute! Wait a minute! That's not how we do things on the BoD playa! I'm going to make this a TAG TEAM match between you and your divorce friend versus your friends twin toddlers. Holla!

    ReplyDelete
  69. I personally would Crockett the shit out of Mania, with HHH going over the winner of Brock/Reigns after buying Rollins' briefcase. There are no popular, sustainable babyfaces outside the injured Bryan and the other guy who seems to win all the time, so they might as well kill some time making WWE a heel territory. If they can't find someone the fans love, go with someone we know they hate.

    ReplyDelete
  70. In that case, why not put Rollins in that role?

    ReplyDelete
  71. That's a weird situation. The whole point of him joining the authority was to be future champ. Now the angle is done and he never even got a title match. He still has the briefcase but still

    ReplyDelete
  72. So what is Reigns definitive singles match to this point? Even Luger and Warrior had hit 4 stars by the time they got the belt. He can't just go around defending the thing in 6 man tags.

    ReplyDelete
  73. I wouldn't be damn opposed to Rollins cashing in at the Rumble after Cena beats Brock.

    ReplyDelete
  74. Meltzer gave the Orton match 4 stars. I personally didn't get into it at all, but he wrote it was a star-making match.

    ReplyDelete
  75. He had, um....
    Well, of course there that time when...
    Okay, but who could forget...


    Huh. Well, I'm sure they were very nice 6-man tags.

    ReplyDelete
  76. I think people don't discuss Rollins because there isn't much to complain about. He's been well-booked, he's the top wrestling heel and he has the briefcase. I don't think Rollins vs Orton would be a bad Mania title match. Lesnar/Reigns can put Reigns over without the title and Cena can face off against Rusev.

    ReplyDelete
  77. Yeah it would have to happen like that. If Rollins cashes in on Lesnar it doesn't work as Lesnar will still look dominant.
    Rollins cashes in on a victorious Cena and then do the three way with The Shield as the Main Event for Mania? You've then got Cena and Bryan waiting for the winner afterwards in fresh matches.

    ReplyDelete
  78. Can't believe I'm saying this but....yeah. CENA WINS at the Rumble to set up a face/face match with Reigns at Mania.

    ReplyDelete
  79. I might be more tempted to do Reigns vs Rollins vs Cena. I think if you put Ambrose in there, people are gonna want Ambrose to win.

    ReplyDelete
  80. Star-making match my ass - the crowd alternated between total silence and rooting for his opponent.

    ReplyDelete
  81. Well I can't necessarily disagree as I've never stayed awake through the whole match

    ReplyDelete
  82. Not enough heat. Ideally we can get D-Bry back in the Dusty role as soon as possible and Rollins just doesn't make Bryan look like enough of an underdog.

    ReplyDelete
  83. It's true but the history and build up writes itself with Ambrose in there. If Cena is in there it's just.....because John Cena.

    ReplyDelete
  84. I've thought this for a little while now, but I really think the main event for WM31 should be Lesnar vs Orton. Orton has done some great stuff this year, has a built in storyline from everything that went down this year, and is a fresh match-up. It would also move right into Orton-Rollins because that issue is still there.

    ReplyDelete
  85. Well, with the correct ring psychology it could work out fine. Ambrose is more interested in revenge than winning the title. That would be his downfall and so long as he got his revenge the crowd would be fine in that scenario.

    ReplyDelete
  86. 6/10 I'd lol again.

    ReplyDelete
  87. Personally I'd book it as Rollins tries to cash in on a battered and bruised Cena after a war with Lesnar. Roman makes his epic return and stops it. Rollins screws Reigns in the RR match and the winner is Ziggler. Then do a triple threat for the right to compete for Cenas belt at Mania. This gives you options in case Reigns return is a colossal flop.

    ReplyDelete
  88. I like Orton and all but no way should he be near that spot this year.
    Bryan, Reigns, Ambrose, Ziggler - all above him as baby face contenders.

    ReplyDelete
  89. The bigger problem is Roman Reigns being tabbed as the next big thing. He's not the guy.

    ReplyDelete
  90. I had no problem with the first Brock/HHH match, that's a legit headliner for a big PPV. The other two matches, however, were pointless.

    ReplyDelete
  91. Here's how I'd book it....
    * at the Rumble, Cena/Lesnar ends in a schmozz, say both guys putting each other through a table following a huge brawl. Rollins runs out, cashes in on Brock, wins the belt. Rollins is still in the Rumble itself (he's wrestling for a 'night off' at Mania) and then WINS IT when it comes down to the three Shield guys. It can be a replay of 1997 where Rollins is tossed but the refs don't see it, so he sneaks back in to eliminate Ambrose and Reigns.
    * Rollins retains against Orton or Cena at Fast Lane, and the Ambrose vs. Reigns #1 contender match on the undercard ends up in a no-contest thanks to Brockference. Whomever the GM is by this point announces a Rollins vs. Ambrose vs. Reigns vs. Lesnar elimination match for the belt at Wrestlemania.

    This allows WWE to put Brock in a high-profile title match yet still not make the result of the match a foregone conclusion if he's leaving. You can have Reigns beat Brock at WM, or maybe the Shield en masse regroups for a triple powerbomb spot to put him out once and for all. I'm not the first to propose this idea for WM31 but it makes a lot of sense. It'd be much preferable to just having Brock vs. Reigns, or in 'wasting' Brock's last match by having some already-established old guy like Orton or Sting retire him.

    ReplyDelete
  92. If they had to put the belt on Lesnar, it should have been done at next year's royal rumble. He still gets to be the hurdle for whoever his challenger is to overcome at Wrestlemania for a massive push. But that way, they don't have to have three god damn PPVs in a row without the champion.

    ReplyDelete
  93. He could win by putting out an interesting product.

    ReplyDelete
  94. They could help the buyrate an another ppv if they have title on the line before wm. I say have taker come back and get his win and the belt from lesnar. Then have some chickenshit heel attack from Rollins who then gets the belt and the ire of the fans for beating taker. Then you have set up for a match at WM and the belt where everyone wants to see Rollins get his comeuppance

    ReplyDelete
  95. Biggest problem I had with Lesnar winning is that for being gone for so long, it has made Rollins, HHH and Cena look like idiots. Rollins wants to cash in but cant and hasn't complained. Cena wants his title shot but cant and hasn't complained. HHH stripped Bryan of the title for not being there but hasn't stripped Lesnar.

    ReplyDelete
  96. Well it's definitely not going to be worth it for Mania's alone. Meltzer has been saying this all along. But I guess they will have to so it if they want to fill these big stadiums.

    ReplyDelete
  97. I really like this as a main event

    ReplyDelete
  98. The Love-Matic Grampa!November 28, 2014 at 8:34 AM

    At this point, they should just have Rollins cash-in at the Rumble after causing a DQ and then transition the belt to Reigns at Wrestlemania. Then Cena can finally beat Brock at the same show and send him packing. Rollins and Reigns can feud for awhile before Reigns moves on to bigger prey, and Cena can feud with Rusev or whomever else until Summerslam, when he puts Reigns over clean in a face-vs-face match. Then maybe he can Orton can to the Superteam deal in the tag division for the fall.

    ReplyDelete
  99. We knew this already because

    a) look at the deal he signed before. Minimal dates for a huge amount of money and kept all his sponsorships on his ring gear and

    b) he mentioned that he might go back UFC when his first deal was due to expire a couple of years ago.

  102. No one. They all blow and the wwe is fucked.

    ReplyDelete
  103. I fail to see the point of Reigns as the next "guy" but if he has to be then Cena should be the one to put him over. If Taker is healthy and willing, you can do either the match with Sting or a rematch with Brock. Otherwise, you can drag out Hunter/Sting to Mania. Outside of that, nothing else is clear. I wouldn't mind seeing Jericho and Bryan put on a random **** match.

    ReplyDelete
  104. The Love-Matic Grampa!November 28, 2014 at 8:56 AM

    I guess it's hard to judge because I don't watch week in and week out, but is Reigns really being positioned as The (New) Man? I know it's just late November all and but...well, with Austin and Rock and Cena it was clear by this point that they were on the verge of breaking out into the big time. I don't get that sense with Reigns from what little I've seen. Yes, he was injured but even before that it's not like he was setting the world afire. He's a perfectly servicable midcard guy amongst a sea of servicable midcard guys, and hardly seems like the Chosen One. And yet we're all assuming Wrestlemania is going to be his coronation. Maybe it will be, but WWE has some serious ground to make up if that is the case.

    ReplyDelete
  105. Who needs a next big thing? It's almost 2015 and the big show is getting a renewed heel push and sting just debuted. If you don't think they can milk another 15 years out if Cena and orton, maybe with Kane even mixed in, then were all mistaken

    ReplyDelete
  106. It seemed to be the plan, as in "Reigns is The Guy." That's it. No actual plan, just intent. They *want* him to be the next star, but they really seem to have no means laid out for him (or anyone) getting there.

    ReplyDelete
  107. And why isn't that the story if the company? Everyone pissed and trying to figure out how to get the belt back. I mean it's RIGHT THERE as a simple, awesome storyline that the fans would be into because it's true.

    ReplyDelete
  108. I can't believe they may put the belt on Reigns at WM. Miz had more credibility to be champ when he won it than Reigns has now.

    ReplyDelete
  109. BEAT LESNAR LIKE A DRUM ON HIS WAY OUT.


    I mean how hard is this. He drops the belt to Cena, loses to Roman Reigns, loses to Dolph Ziggler, loses to HHH, loses to whoever you want. Fuck, have Paul Heyman dump him in favor of a new Paul Heyman guy (Ryback, Shemaus, whatever) and let him go play around in Bellator or UFC or whereever he wants to go for his next paycheck.

    ReplyDelete
  110. In their defense, he's been injured September. So maybe they would have been building him up this whole time.


    On the other hand, injury or not, they haven't been building him up this whole time, so it is time for them to cosidering pushing somebody whose stock is on the rise (Ziggler, Ambrose) as "the guy" for WrestleMania 31.

  111. They should just get it over with annd have Brock drop the belt at the Slammys or something. The sooner the belt is off of him the better at this point.


    But I have a feeling this is going to be one of those times they stick with their "long term plan" no matter how bad it continues to look.

  112. Why do these fight companies think that a Lesnar who is four years older going to be competitive in legitimate fights? Or do they just see the one big buyrate his comeback fight will draw as wroth it?

  113. Lesnar/Cena at Rumble in a No DQ or Last Man Standing. Have a Rocky/Apollo finish with Lesnar just beating the count after a tremendous brawl. He is about to pass out when Rollins cashes in. Have Seth play the full-on chickenshit heel for the next few months, pass the title at WM to...whoever (they want Reigns, I think most here are against that).

  114. Why didn't wwe plan ahead?! Now taker losing his streak and the wwe title being off tv have been rendered meaningless. Any CEO who did this in a major business or sports franchise would have been fired for this. Cant stockholders demand accountability?

  115. John Cena should be the next Heyman guy. :-)

    They could make a Loser leaves WWE with Brock (c) vs John Cena at Wrestlemania and Heyman the screws Lesnar and Cena is the new Champion and Heyman guy and Lesnar can leave WWE and Cena can defend the title against Ambrose, Reigns, face Orton, even a face Triple H or Daniel Bryan if he is ready.

  116. This and then Dean Ambrose wins the Rumble while Reigns is eliminated by Rusev having then at Wrestlemania:

    World Title:

    Seth Rollins vs Dean Ambrose
    Loser Leaves WWE:

    Cena vs Lesnar
    Reigns vs Rusev
    or so.


    Then at Extreme Rules they can let the Shield explode with:
    Dean Ambrose (c) vs Seth Rollins vs Roman Reigns

  117. What would be even more badass is having the Shield reunite for about three minutes as soon as the bell sounds to beat the hell out of Lesnar to eliminate him. Have him kick out of a triple powerbomb, only to get triple powerbombed again to send him back to UFC/Bellator/whatever. Then have Rollins attack Ambrose or Reigns to continue the match
